Opposition to the American' Ad
vance Otis' Report of Yesterday.
Manila, April 12 6:10. p. nr. Gen
eral Wheaton started at daylight with
the Tenth Pennsylvania and the Second
Oregon regiments, and two guns, to
drive the rebels from the American
right flank between the railroad and the
foothills. He met with slight resistance
near Santa Maria, and one man was
wonnded, but the .enemy bolted when
helled by the artillery, and burned and
abandoned the town of Santa Maria,
where 1000 rebels were reported to haye
been concentrated.
During the rest of the dav the enemy
was in fall retreat toward the mountains
burning villages behind the retreating
force. Occasionally a few rebels drop
ped to the rear, and fired at the advanc
ing American troops from the jungle, ap
parently with the idea that this would
check our advance and cover the retreat
of the Filipinos. Finding these tactics
ineffectual, these rebels scrambled after
the mam body.
Washington, April 12. The follow
ing cablegram has been received from
General Otis: ....
"Manila, April 12. Adjutant-General,
Washington : Yesterday in the
lake region Lawton pursued the insur
gents eastward from Santa Cruz, dis
persing them. He captured all the
larger vessels used in the lake trade, and
a Spanish gunboat. He is now en
deavoring to pass them from the river,
where they were concealed, into the
"Wheaton drove the enemy ten miles
to the eastward of the railway communi
cation with MaloioB. Lawton ' and
Wheaton's casualties are few and slight
as the enemy made no stand.
"I have been notified by Spain that
she will evacuate Mindora and Polo
soon. - OTIS."
Manila, April 12. 6 :50 p. m. Gen
eral Wheaton has telegraphed to Gen
eral Otis, saying: "They would not
wait to be killed." General Lawton is
scouring the vicinity of Santa Crnz. He
find the rebels have decamped. He has
secured a gunboat, six lannches-and two
cascoes, comprising the Filipino fleet.

the Herald from Manila says: Lawton's
command captured the villages of Pagsa
jan and Lumban yesterday after some
resistance at the latter place. The
month of the river, commanded by
Lumban, was effectually blocked against
the entrance of the gunboats.
Shells from the Laguna de Bay drove
most of the insurgents in flight up the
mountain side. A small force remained
in an old church, offering resistance un
til it was ruBhed by the troops. About
fifty were captured and several killed.
There was one casualty among the
Americans, that being an arm wound.

End Not in Sight.
New Yokk, April 12. A dispatch to
the World from Manila says: While it
is probable that there is an end to the
big engagements in the Philippines be
tween the Americans and Filipinos, the
war is not at an end by any means. It
is the universal opinion among army men
here that it will require the presence of
50,000 American troops to occupy the
territory that has been taken, and to
keep open communication among the
General Lawton's advance promises to
meet with a harassing resistance.
Trenches are built by the enemy from
town to town. On all sides the rebels
are in nightly communication by means
of signal fires. They avoid being caught
in a trap, and are quick to harass the
flank. ..
Since March 25 the enemy's losses have
not been more than double ours.
Our kindness to the rebel wounded
and prisoners does not allay their dogged
enmity. Only a small portion of the
popnlation of the north have returned to
their homes. Only the diseased and
aged remain in Santa Crnz.

Grant County Stockmen Not Anxious
to Sell.
Long Creek, Or., April 11. A promi
nent stockman of this connty, who has
bought and sold cattle and sheep in East
ern Oregon for twenty years, was today
asked his views as to the outlook for
stock this year. He said :
"In my opinion, cattle will, before the
close of the buying season, command, a
higher price than has been realized by
Eastern Oregon stockmen for years. I
have canvassed the field pretty thorough
ly, and find the cattle-owners almost as
a unit determined to bold their cattle at
prices equal to or better than were paid
last year.
"The loss of cattle during the winter
will not exceed 8 or 10 per cent, while
th3 loss of sheep might be conservatively
estimated at 20 per cent."

Eight Hundred of Mataafa's Followers
SurpriseA One Hundred Americans
Casualties Among the Mataafans Were
Forty Killed and a Number
- Wonnded, the Latter Being Carried
Off by Their Comrades When They
Retired. '
San JTbancisco, April 12. The "Call
this morning prints the following special
copyrighted cablegram:-
Auckland, N. Z., April 12. On April
1, 800 of Mataafa's men ambuscaded 100
bluejackets near Apia. The fighting was
terrific, the American and British tars
repeatedly beating back their assailants,
who sought to overwhelm them by force
of numbers. Lieutenants Lansdale and
Ensign Monaghan, of the United States
cruiser Philadelphia, and Lietftenant
Freeman, of the British gunboat Taranga,
were killed. After the rebels had been
driven off the bodies of these three officers
were recovered. They bad been decapi
tated by the savage Samoan warriors.
Four marines were killed.
Mataafa's loss was forty killed and a
number wounded, these being carried
off the field by the rebels when they re
tired. .
The bodies of Lansdale, Monaghan
and Freeman, as well as those of the un
fortunate marineB, were burled with
military honors at Mulinun.
. There is constant fighting with the
natives around Apia, and the life of no
European in the islands is safe.
Grave Apprehension.

from Samoa was received here with
feeling approaching dismay. There was
a refusal on the part of higher officials to
